Ridiculous generalization? Man I couldn't be further from a top hat wearing monacle dropping daily mail reader who think's the roughians today outta be shot. I still smoke weed occasionally myself and was a pretty big smoker like 2 years ago. I'm not 'judging' anyone mate.

Why say what? I didn't ridiculously generalize or judge anyone in anything I've said. Quotes...

The original article is about Mike, not Joe, is it not?

Actually there's 2 generalizations in there. One about people who say weed isn't addictive and what about people who smoke regularly. I don't really care, just yeah....

This is the opening of the article and techincally is about the most ironic twist of fate in the ufc. It takes up a large portion of the article. Is it ok to talk about?

In what is perhaps the most ironic twist of fates in UFC history, it has been rumored that UFC commentator Mike Goldberg — yes, that would be Mike Goldberg, not Joe Rogan, the weed-loving, LSD enthusiast with a DMT molecule tattooed on his arm who can often be seen shouting at you in a coke rage alongside Goldberg

Weed is proven to not be chemically (i.e. physically) addictive but like anything that makes a human feel good it can become addictive from a habit forming perspective.

Which is by far the more difficult addiction.

I don't smoke weed. I don't think it's addictive it's exactly what above says. People like it therefore the don't stop. That's like saying McDonald's is addicting.

Rogan has dropped hints before that Goldie has a bit of an addictive personality, so when I heard this it makes sense. An example is on his podcast he talks about how pre-show Goldie downs like 4-6 redbulls in 30 minutes or so to keep him 'on top of his game' or something like that.

I hope he gets better.

I'm sorry, I didn't know the hyperbole police were around. The MAJORITY of people who say weed isn't addictive are regular weed smokers.

And what is the other generalization?

And it is ironic. Joe Rogan has a show about drugs basically, and his broadcast partner is addicted to drugs.

rabakill, most "tests" people find out about are very biased. In unrelated and related studies, there is proof that anything that effects your mental state, wether it be ups, downs or relaxing, can be very addictive. Mental addiction is the majority of addiction. Habbit is much stronger than addiction because it's the desire which makes people cave in, not the cravings themself.

And I'm just saying this shit from experience. I was never addicted, but mainly cause I'm not stupid enough to let myself fall to an addiction, but the older people get the more the "potheads" who were complete 24/7 baked try and try to give up smoking, but it never sticks and they always end up back at it. The reason more people think weed is good for you is because more people post that shit on the internet/ Is there anyone that cares enough to look up that it's bad for you? Most people want clarification that what they're doing is justified, when really they should just blaze up a blunt, stick on some Cypress not give two shits.

This is ignorant biased garbage, it really is. There are millions of successful people that smoke weed all the time, not every stoner is a waste of space despite your obviously ridiculous and uneducated bias.

Basically it's poison like all the rest, people just can't differentiate between what some thug on the street is selling and what the "nice" drug dealer (pharma) on wall street is selling the public legally in certain countries.

The problem is knowledge or lack there of. There is no difference other than one dealer having a license to ruin people's lives.
The dose makes a poison. And there is a very big difference. For one the stuff you get at the pharmacy is pure and is reasonably dosed. No residue of other substances that might have more adverse effects.

Secondly, heroine and cocaine were used in medicine not very long ago and they're very effective. The reason why they're now blacklisted is because people were/are abusing them. Plus there are safer substances nowadays that are still dangerous but obviously there's a risk/reward situation here. By the way, marijuana is on the very same list in a lot of countries(not in Canada as far as I know).

The problem is knowledge and that's what your pharmacist is supposed to be there for. Sadly in most countries the pharmacist has become just another salesman. That's why I hear "I don't want chemistry, I want something natural." every day. When I tell them that morphine and cocaine is just as natural as tobacco, chocolate, caffeine and alcohol they usually won't believe me.
